*** It was also in Meta affect - For some time Courtney Cox was trying to have a baby, and the writers decided to roll with it, with Monica and Chandler trying to have a child. She was having difficulty, so the writers decided that hey, let's roll with that too, and had Monica and Chandler adopt. Shortly after this was written, Courtney Cox became pregnant with her longed-for child. This, however, was a little ''too'' unexpected to roll with, so Monica ended up wearing a lot of loose shirts in Season 10.

* In ''[[Literature/AddictedSeries Addicted]]'', Rose and Lily, neither of whom were trying for a baby or even wanted one, got pregnant within two weeks of each other. In "Long Way Down", Daisy desperately wants a child, [[spoiler: and it takes months before she finally gets pregnant.]]

** WordOfGod is that Goten was conceived in the ten day span between the announcement of the Cell Games and Goku's second death. Though whether this was planned or not is never stated. It was probably just an off-screen PreClimaxClimax.

* Seen in Fanfic/OfLiliesAndChestnuts. Fleur De Lis had to put her dreams of having an adorable little filly of her own on hold for years due to her modeling career, and once she's finally [[HappilyMarried settled down with Fancy Pants]] and secure in her upper-class social standing, she naturally finds out she can't conceive a child. After Fancy Pants comforts her through a few days of depression, they look to adopt a child, which results in an excitable teenage bat pony crashing into their lives.

* [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Izumi]]'s situation, as mentioned in the Anime folder, is touched on in the final installment of the Fanfic/ElementalChessTrilogy. Alphonse's daughter asks about the whole thing, including why she and Sig never adopted a child since they couldn't have their own.
* This is part of Lady Delphine's briefly-mentioned history in the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series. She had one daughter, who died as a baby, and was never able to have other children.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'': Subtly implied in the opening montage: a brief shot of Carl and Ellie in a doctor's office. There's a picture of a baby on the wall, so presumably it's here OB-GYN. Ellie is crying. It's especially heartbreaking since the buildup has Carl and Ellie making a room for the baby. WordOfGod says it was a miscarriage that left Ellie unable to have more children. What we see is what little they could actually show/feel comfortable putting in a kid's movie.

* Mentioned in the opening narration of ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', as King Stefan and his queen longed for many years to have a child. The wish was finally granted, but they only were able to keep Aurora for a very short time before they had to surrender her to the good fairies (to protect her from Maleficent), and so they effectively remained childless anyway.
